Paid Family Leave legislation is increasingly prevalent, with many local and state governments moving full steam ahead with implementation, and New York is no different. On April 4, 2016, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed New York's Paid Family Leave Law, implementing the most comprehensive paid family leave program in the nation. Under the statute and the proposed regulations, which cover virtually all New York employers, there are many unanswered questions. The law's effective date is January 1, 2018.

Please join us for an interactive presentation where we will engage in a detailed discussion on the law’s various requirements as well as its anticipated interplay with benefits and leave policies.

Topics will include:

  • In-depth overview of Paid Family Leave Law and proposed implementing regulations
  • The interaction between PFL and Disability, Workers' Compensation, FMLA and the NYC Earned Sick Leave Act
  • Written policy and posting requirements
